Skypath Defender Panic Button

“Our first responders in the state of Florida require the best technology to make Floridians safer in their homes and in the community at large.” said Jeff Marano, Vice President for Charters of the Florida Police Benevolent Association.

On August 4, 2020 Skypath Security, Inc. the leader in mobile intelligent and interactive threat assessment, threat awareness and personal safety which is linked, in real time, directly to first responders, is announcing today the integration of a wearable device, key fob and SmartPhone Personal Alert System into its World Class, Award Winning “Mobile Defense Platform”.

School Systems can use the wearable devices, key fobs or SmartPhone Personal Alert System as part of their overall school safety plan to save lives. The wearable devices, key fobs or SmartPhone Personal Alert System allow teachers and staff to tap a single button to make an emergency call while simultaneously sending an alert message including their EXACT location in the building or on campus by text, email and directly to dispatchers and emergency responders in car computers which have the blueprints, schematics and layout of the building through the Skypath “Mobile Defense Platform.

The results are faster and more accurate response creating better situational awareness for first responders. Technology advancements have dramatically increased the number of options available for student safety. Only 31% of active shooter incidents last longer than five minutes, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. With such a small window to act, it is critical for first responders to be notified and dispatched quickly and for those at the scene to take immediate action. Seconds Saves lives.

This technology specifically complies with the State of Florida’s newly passed bill SB 70 amending S.1006.07, F.S.; requiring each public school to implement a mobile panic alert system for specified purposes beginning in a specified school year.

Alert Systems in Public Schools; Citing this act as “Alyssa’s Law”; requiring each public school to implement a mobile panic alert system for specified purposes beginning in a specified school year; authorizing public school districts to implement additional strategies and systems for specified purposes; requiring the Department of Education to issue a competitive solicitation to contract for a mobile panic alert system

“Our first responders in the state of Florida require the best technology to make Floridians safer in their homes and in the community at large.” said Jeff Marano, Vice President for Charters of the Florida Police Benevolent Association. “Every single day emergency calls are made for medical, fire or general safety issues. The Skypath Security Panic Button Alert System and Mobile Defense Platform can instantaneously communicate with first responders and each other. It also has the ability to improve communication around non-emergency events, ensuring daily use and familiarity with the application. The result is improved safety and peace-of-mind.” Mr. Marano concluded.

Ordermark is based in Los Angeles, CA, one of the leading online ordering management solutions for restaurants and virtual restaurant concepts.

Ordermark was funded $120 million series C round funding. The funding was led by prominent technology investor SoftBank Vision Fund and joined by returning investor Act One Ventures. The grant will use to help more restaurants transition to online ordering during the pandemic and beyond.

The company’s software consolidates incoming orders from multiple platforms and sends them to a single printer. Ordermark also operates a company called Nextbite, a portfolio of 15 readymade virtual brands such as CraveBurger, Firebelly Wings, and HotBox by Wiz, a collaboration with rapper Wiz Khalifa. Restaurants can offer these delivery-only brands out of existing kitchens, opening up additional revenue streams.

Jeff Housenbold, the Managing Partner at SoftBank Investment Advisers, said. They believe Ordermark is a leading technology platform and innovative virtual restaurant concepts transform the restaurant industry. And they are excited to support their mission to help independent restaurants optimize online ordering and generate incremental revenue from under-utilized kitchens.

The rise of ghost kitchens and virtual restaurants, often referred to as the 3rd wave of food delivery, have paved the way for a broader addressable market for online food delivery.

The statement of Alex Canter, the chief executive officer behind Ordermark 2020, has been a tough year for restaurants. That’s why they are focus on providing products and services to help keep their doors open. This funding allows them to offer more restaurants with innovative ways to reach more consumers.

Artificial Intelligence: Intel First To Deploy AI “On Edge” In Space

Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) has the distinction of launching the first onboard AI processing chip into space. Earlier this month, the European Space Agency and Intel announced the successful deployment in space of PhiSat-1, the first-ever satellite with onboard AI-processing capabilities. Launched from a rocket dispenser on September 2, the PhiSat-1 is positioned about 530 km above our heads, moving at a speed of 27,500 km per hour in a sun-synchronous orbit.

Artificial Intelligence: Intel First To Deploy AI “On Edge” In Space

A satellite the size of a cereal box, carrying a camera and an AI chip, is now in orbit.

Launched from a rocket dispenser on September 2, the PhiSat-1 is positioned about 530 km above our heads. It is moving at a speed of 27,500 km per hour in a sun-synchronous orbit.

PhiSat-1

The satellite’s objective is to monitor polar ice and soil moisture, as well as to test inter-satellite communication systems.

The satellite carries a hyperspectral-thermal camera and an Intel Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU). The latter is responsible for the AI heavy lifting operations onboard the spacecraft.

Myriad’s immediate function is to curate the huge mass of data captured by the camera.

AI at the ultimate edge – space

The big problem facing the scientists was the sheer volume of data generated by the hi-fidelity camera onboard the PhiSat-1. The camera unfortunately does not know how to differentiate between a cloudy and clear environment.

It, therefore, takes a large number of photographs that are useless because, at any given time, clouds envelop two-thirds of the earth’s surface.

The junk photos consume precious internet bandwidth to send down to earth. After all that, scientists would likely delete the unclear photos.

The scientists decided to use onboard AI (also known as “on edge” processing) to curate the photos. Myriad-2 would examine the images, trash the useless ones, and send only the good ones to earth.

By discarding the cloudy images at the source, they saved nearly 30% of bandwidth.

“Artificial intelligence at the edge came to rescue us, the cavalry in the Western movie,” says Gianluca Furano, data systems and onboard computing lead at the European Space Agency.

“Space is the ultimate edge,” says Aubrey Dunne, chief technology officer of Ubotica, the Irish startup that built and tested PhiSat-1’s AI technology. “The Myriad was absolutely designed from the ground up to have an impressive compute capability but in a very low power envelope, and that really suits space applications.”

Ubotica worked with cosine, the maker of the camera, in addition to the University of Pisa and Sinergise.

After three weeks of testing, the team could establish that Intel’s Myriad AI onboard the PhiSat-1 was working fine.

ESA then announced “the first-ever hardware-accelerated AI inference of Earth observation images on an in-orbit satellite.”

Satellite-as-a-service!

Scientists can now visualize multiple applications of AI on satellites.

For example, the satellite, during one orbit, could switch from spotting wildfires on land to rogue ships or environmental accidents at sea such as oil spills.

It could measure crops and soil moisture over farms and forests, and assess the ill effect of climate change on melting ice caps.
